It is common knowledge that Tottenham Hotspur’s new boss Mauricio Pochettino wants to sell central defender and club skipper Michael Dawson this summer as he plots widespread changes to his squad.

The 30-year old is not in Pochettino’s scheme of things and while he does have an interested suitor in Steve Bruce’s Hull City, personal terms are turning out to be a problem, reports the Metro.

Dawson wants Spurs to give him a payout for leaving the club after having served 10 years at White Hart Lane and he wants Hull City to offer him a four-year deal instead of the three-years they have already offered him.

His terms are unacceptable to both teams, who are desperate to cut their costs this summer, and thus a move away from White Hart Lane for the 30-year old is on hold.

Steve Bruce admitted that the Tigers are far off from striking a deal by saying; “As far as Michael is concerned, it’s stalemate and at the moment we are as far away as we can be from doing a deal.”

With Spurs desperate to offload the centre-back, one reckons that the onus is on them to push Dawson into exiting the club so they could accommodate new defensive signings.
